The Other Side of Isolation

Our children are loving this time.   They have their parents full attention.   We have nothing on the calendar except playtime; all day, everyday.   We play all kinds of  board games, we do crafts, we've gone on many hikes, we play in the backyard.  We are building them a new playset.  They are having the best...

A Talent Hidden is a Talent Lost

I've grown up going to church.   I have heard each story probably a hundred times but recently I heard one in a different light.   That's why you can never say, "I don't need to read the Bible anymore, I've read the whole thing."   Every time I read or hear a passage it can speak to...

Today I was reading blogs on WordPress and I did something I don't often do and that was search a topic and start reading. I searched teenagers. Mostly because they have been on my...

Finding Peace

This is my view tonight. As I lay here in the pool, the word peace came to mind.  I was overwhelmed by how calm I felt and how peaceful it is.   After 8pm, after the 3 littles are in bed, after the teens are all organized with their evening plans.   Quiet.  Peaceful. Got... Continue Reading →

20 adopted children

This spring I was able to attend an adoption and foster parent conference in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.   It was so great to be in a place where everyone you meet is in the same phase of life as you.  No one blinked when I answered their question of "How many kids do you have?".   There...
